AP-LS Award for Best Undergraduate Paper
To be eligible for an award, the student must be the major contributor to a project on a topic relevant to psychology and law (i.e., the student had primary responsibility for initiating and conducting the project even though the project will usually be conducted under the supervision of a mentor). Data collection should be complete. Winners will be encouraged to submit their work for presentation at the AP-LS Conference (as first authors). Students may submit their work during their first post-undergraduate year as long as the work was conducted during their undergraduate career.
Nominations/applications: Send one copy of each of the following:
Submit one copy of APA-style paper (Abstract required). The paper should be a maximum of 25 pages of text (12-point font, one-inch margins), including the abstract and tables/figures. The 25-page maximum does not include the title page and references. Papers that do not meet these requirements will be disqualified.
Each applicant must have their mentor submit a letter of support to the chair that characterizes the nature and extent of the student’s contribution to the project. This letter should be a maximum of two pages of text (12-point font, one-inch margins). Applications that do not meet these requirements for letters of support will be disqualified.
Deadline for receipt of all materials is June 30.
